After consulting with her doctor, Sharapova was advised to withdraw from the tournament because of an upper respiratory viral illness.

As you know, I have been sick since the weekend (upper respiratory viral illness) and upon seeing the doctor this morning, I have taken his advice and reluctantly had to withdraw from this year’s Open GDF SUEZ. I am really sorry about having to pull out of the tournament as I really wanted to play in Paris this year, having received a wildcard Even though I did everything possible to be ready to play, unfortunately, I am just unable to. I would like to apologize to the fans and thank the tournament for being very kind to me and trying to help in every way.
